Within the next 48 hours, we'll be distributing a v1.1.5 beta installation package to each of the testers.
The beta will run for about two weeks. After this, we'll spend another day or two making sure that everything is in order for the public release.
The manual will be getting an update as well, although we're not giving an ETA on this just yet.
We'll be making the mod available on Desura and will be posting a change log here, in the news section, once it has been finalized.
We're really hoping to be able to bring everyone together and make online play much easier and more accessible. The full-auto installer, comprehensive mod launcher, and game session organizer all contribute to this goal. We think it's a step in the right direction and look forward to your feedback, at the end of this month.
